Welcome back to the site that puts the merry in Merry Christmas, for bookish folk at least…Satisfaction for Insatiable Readers.
Today, we’re taking a peek inside the ecover of a Children’s Storybook perfect for your holiday reading list. It’s a rhyming treasure with appeal for all ages, in one way or another. *ahem* Curious as to why I made that distinction? No worries. I’m ready to explain AND share today’s book of choice with all of you! Drum roll please…. *ratta tat tat ratta tat tat ratta tat* …move over Santa, there’s someone else joining you by the fireside with your cookies and milk! Today’s featured title is…
This is a book for all those that truly BELIEVE…in Santa that is! It presents a rational explanation to the seemingly impossible task that the jolly elf takes on every year. I mean really, how DOES the old guy get ALL those presents delivered BY HIMSELF in ONE NIGHT? *raises eyebrow* Magic is one thing but even with a healthy dose of it….Saaaaaaannnnta! You has some esplainin’ to do! (Sorry…joke for the older readers. ^_^)
Here we find out in rather colorful images AND detail (Oh on the detail!) just how this GINORMOUS task gets done. You see, Santa doesn’t just do the whole kit and caboodle himself; he has help. They come in a furry little, bushy tailed package and can get into places that the big guy can’t quite make whether due to his mass or his time. No worries kiddos! Santa WILL be at your house placing a gift under the tree…one way or another.
Obviously the appeal here for the little ones resides in finding out just how all those toys get made, transported, and delivered round the world in both verse and imagery. Definitely a win there. The appeal for older readers, or even the repulsion to some degree, is in how the gifts are “made”. Don’t get me wrong, it’s still a cute story but you just have to take that little “ick” factor with a healthy dose of humor. Once you get past that, you’ll be free wheeling through as you develop a new appreciation for the little squirrels that you meet each day…and the monumental task of the heart that Santa takes on each year.
In conclusion, a humorous and smile inducing read that explains the supposed explainable holiday mystery that perplexes and puzzles our puzzlers every year, in a mostly believable way; plus there’s the “respect your fellow furry friends”. I mean really, the only way to know for certain just how it gets done is to have a sit down with St. Nick himself…ooh…that would be AWESOME…so I mean if anyone out there is on a first name basis with the man in red and white, hook me up with an interview, kay?
